Rail passengers stay on track as engineering works begin in earnest

We've been checking out the engineering works on the rail network around Oxford today, and how commuters have been coping.

Thousands of rail replacement bus services have been introduced as the line between Oxford and Didcot Parkway will be closed for 16 days for flood prevention work at Hinksey.

The tracks at Hinksey run alongside the River Thames and have flooded 11 times in 14 years.

They will be raised 60cm (24 inches) and culverts will be built to allow water to flow underneath the line.

It comes amid opposition MPs' calls for reform of the system after the the Witney MP's alleged list was leaked by a newspaper.

The Sunday Times said Mr Cameron had chosen to reward Remain campaigners and No 10 staff and donors, including his wife Samantha's special adviser.

Downing Street said all the "proper processes" would be followed.

The shelter says some cats are taking months to find new homes, partly because of the usual summer fall in demand.

The centre says the summer is also known as 'kitten season', with an influx of pregnant mums and unwanted litters.

Robin Chard's 'personal crusade'

Robin Chard's JustGiving fundraising page total has now soared past the £15,000 mark. 

He had survived Hodgkin Lymphoma, while his wife Vickie lost her mother to non-Hodgkin Lymphoma. Meanwhile, his father and stepfather both died from lung cancer.

He said before the event he wanted to "try and find more effective and permanent cures and improve the treatments available today".

You can see it's a bit of a personal crusade, but I'm not riding a white charger, just a bike 100 miles in and around London.

A&E waiting time targets missed for a year

Accident and emergency departments in Oxfordshire's biggest hospitals have missed waiting time targets every month in the last year, a new report shows. 

July 2015 was the last time Oxford University Hospitals NHS Trust (OUHT) met the national target of 95% of patients being treated in under four hours. 

NHS chiefs said patients were forced to wait in A&E for beds and care to become available. 

The county's clinical commissioning group said the situation was improving.
